Simply I can say very bad. I was totally unsatisfied with that trip yesterday. Staff behaviour also very abd. Boarding point was unknown. Simply everything was very bad and terrible. I never recommend this service to anyone. Sorry to say.
The NH is straight. Nicely maintained. Except the toll plaza's the journey was smooth. Flat 4 hours is what it takes to reach Trichy. Once you reach Google map or take guidance, as the entrance to the city and route to Bus Stand is quite tricky.
All restaurants are available only to Villupuram. The entire stretch from Villupuram to Trichy via Perambulur is clear with less traffic.
The road trip to Trichy was awesome with such a nice road being laid down. Travelling with your friends to the place in this route gives a great time. You need to take care of your food as there are very few good restaurants on the way. The ECR Route is also awesome with some great locations on the route.
It is not nice to drive by car. It takes 5 h 14 min (324.5 km) via NH45 and National Highway 45/NH45. Better go in that NH 45 it so good to drive. Be happy in your journey. Its happy ending when I reached Trichy, its nice moment to visit Trichy. Vegetarian and vegan place excellent decor and facilities ( very clean and modern washrooms!!). Ample parking. Opens at 06:30 and runs till 23:00. Food is excellent and well trained service staff.
Located on Grand Southern Trunk road (GST) / Chennai-Trichy highway, just beyond Melmaruvathur. We spotted this in transit out of Chennai enroute to Coimbatore on NH45.
